A New Chapter Every Day

Inspired by the beauty and power of the Red Dress®, The Heart Truth® celebrates the personal stories that unite us in a shared journey toward better heart health. These stories empower us to fight heart disease—the #1 killer of American women and serve as a reminder that you have the power to take action and to protect your heart health. By taking action, you can inspire your friends, your family, and your neighbors to live longer, healthier lives. Share your story. Help others be inspired by your daily heart health triumphs—a healthier diet, a longer walk, a few minutes of quiet meditation—no matter how small you think they are. Live every day with all your heart.

Through the collective power of The Heart Truth, its partners, and the stories from women like you, we continue to motivate others around us to make a commitment to take action to lower their risk for heart disease and protect their heart health.

The Heart Truth’s #4MyHeart is an interactive challenge designed to help you lower your risk for heart disease. Take action, starting today, to protect your heart. Track your progress and share your success with us on Facebook, Twitter, and Pinterest using #4MyHeart.
